problems with yum


I am using fedora core 4 (with last kernel available). As I installed fc4 I configured yum and it worked just fine , however recently it seems to work only whenever he likes to , and every time I write in root mode "yum install ..." it's just a matter of luck if it is going to work. I usually writes this error message:

[root@realcr yum.repos.d]# yum search ardour

I followed everything written in livna's website however it didn't work. I really have no idea what is wrong..

put this in you /etc/yum.conf
